I am a fair weather gardener. My hubby worked outside over the weekend, but not I.
Saturday we toured the Street of Dreams. Perhaps your city has a similar event. Builders participate and build luxurious homes which are furnished and decorated by participating companies who pay to have their products used and advertised. Admission fees go to architectural scholorships. We found our new home -- only 1.4 million -- unfurnished. It was an incredible turn of the century style, and we decided we could live very comfortably there. Now all we need to do is win the lottery. LOL
Went to see Pirates of the Carribean, Dead Man's Chest yesterday. It was as much fun as all the hype predicted. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Then I movie binged. Failure to Launch, Nanny McPhee, What a Girl Wants, Rumor Has It and Just Like Heaven. I think Just Like Heaven was my favorite of those.
It was 104 degrees here today! What do you think I did? I stayed inside and worked on my story, of course. One quick run to the post office was enough exposure for me. There are heat advisories in effect. They are like tornado warnings or storm alerts, for those of you who don't have heat like this. Charitable organizations take bottled water downtown to the homeless, the Salvation Army opens their offices for people to come in and get cool and watch DVDs in the afternoon. People are encouraged to check on the elderly and keep their dogs indoors.
Weatherman predicts one more day of this heat before it cools off. Some cities are rationing water for lawns. Lemonade anyone?
